A number of bills proposed for the 2024 session would increase liberty for Granite Staters by holding police accountable or by making it more difficult for them to act as tyrants. Many areas of the laws could be improved this session, including traffic laws and protection of due process.
As it stands, RSA 173 directs law enforcement officers to confiscate all firearms and ammunition from individuals whenever a person files a restraining order against them. The orders are approved practically by default, and the subject is given an opportunity to contest the order of protection after the gun confiscation occurs, generally a month later.
State Representative Tom Mannion (R-Pelham) has been a champion for peace and liberty since entering the State House in 2022. Last year, Mannion co-sponsored HB229, the ‘Defend The Guard’ bill, which would protect NH Guardsmen from foreign conflict deployments without an official declaration of war. This winter, the House will vote on another bill aimed at protecting New Hampshire’s youth from the US Military draft.
After being retained from last year’s session, the ‘Defend The Guard’ legislation finally had its public hearing in the New Hampshire House of Representatives. On Wednesday, legislators and members of the public packed the room to testify before the House Committee on State-Federal Relations & Veterans’ Affairs on House Bill 229. Nearly everyone in the room was in support of the bill, which simply called for an end to the deployment of New Hampshire Guard members to fight foreign wars without a congressional declaration of war.
Over the past few months, Alu Axelman has turned three of his nine books into audio-books. One of the most frequent requests involves making the books available on audio for those who prefer to listen rather than read. Alu has found three excellent narrators, two of which are members of the New Hampshire liberty community.
Legislation filed by Representative Jason Gerhard (R-Northfield) would place a question on the ballot for the voters of New Hampshire. If approved by two thirds of voters, the New Hampshire Constitution would be amended to say that the state will declare independence if the federal government accrues a debt of $40 trillion. As of 10/13, the US debt is $33.5 trillion. In 2020, the debt was under $27 trillion.
“Liberty in our lifetime“ – for Free Staters this is not just an empty slogan. It is the rallying cry we listened to and took to heart before we uprooted our lives, packed the moving van, and started driving to New Hampshire. It encapsulates more than just a political strategy, it demonstrates hope. The hope that we do not have to descend into the darkness of totalitarianism, but have a fighting chance against the forces of deceit and communism.
There is a perpetual chronic blood shortage. Since I am an O- blood type (universal blood donor) and CMV (Cytomegalovirus) negative (a disease that most adults have been exposed to but is fatal if babies are exposed to it), I am constantly bombarded with emails from the Red Cross soliciting my blood. Fortunately, I donate my blood as often as they allow me to, but not everyone is like me.
After years of considering it and slowly working on it for over a year, Alu Axelman has finally published one of his nine books in Spanish. His 2022 book, ‘Articles of Secession’ has been translated and proofread by Alu and Leliz Cedrone, another porcupine and native Spanish speaker.
